Why haven't we heard from conservatives about Murdock?

Conservatives always complain about the liberal media in the US, but why haven't we heard anything about what is happening to Murdock's media empire?

Is fraud and wire-tapping an accepted method to make news?

What's going to happen to Murdock's US holdings - if anything?

FOX News deserves to disappear from our landscape.

I don't think this affects Murdoch's U. S. holdings.

The reason you don't hear about this from conservatives is because so many of them are basically clueless. Most of them don't know who owns Faux News. Those who do are likely keeping their heads down.

Perhaps Fox News hasn't told them yet and they don't know.

@Thomas,
That's an interesting question. Is Fox covering the Murdoch situation in the U.K. at all?

@ehBeth,
that was an interesting search

Put Murdoch in the Fox News search window. A bit of a spin going on perhaps?

@ehBeth,
Spin? Never. The British government simply hates freedom.

UPDATE: An hour after everyone else, the Fox site now has a small above-the-fold mention of Murdoch dropping the BSkyB bid. This is like the way the Soviet press covered Chernobyl: "small problem in the Ukraine."

That is probably true.

Fox's not covering the scandal seems to be news.

Interesting.

Just to compare and contrast: NBC and MSNBC are owned by General Electric, the designer of the Fukushima power plant. When the plant blew up, I watched [MS]NBC's coverage of the event a lot. I was curious to see if they were any softer on the culprits than the other networks were. But they weren't. NBC and MSNBC were as tough on the operators, and on nuclear energy, as any. A further cautionary tale against finding false equivalences between America's most right-wing and most left-wing channel.

@Thomas,
More news on Murdoch's News Corp.

FBI opens investigation of News Corp.: WSJ, AP

CHICAGO (MarketWatch) -- Shares of News Corp. fell 3% Thursday afternoon after published reports said the FBI has begun an investigation of whether the company's employees hacked into the phones of 9/11 victims. The Wall Street Journal and the Associated Press reported the probe, citing unnamed sources familiar with the situation. On Wednesday, three U.S. lawmakers called for an investigation. Phone-hacking allegations against News Corp.'s UK newspapers have gained momentum in the last two weeks, resulting in the shutdown of the 168-year-old News of the World and forcing News Corp. to withdraw its $14 billion bid for the 61% of British Sky Broadcasting PLC it doesn't already own. News of the World and the other UK newspapers employed reporters in the U.S. A News Corp. spokeswoman declined comment Thursday afternoon. News Corp. is the parent company of The Wall Street Journal, Dow Jones Newswires, Barron's, Factiva and MarketWatch, the publisher of this report.
